Embarking on His Own Immigration Journey

A native of Lebanon, a young Ahmad Yakzan came to the United States as a student in 1998. Having only a student visa, he worked hard toward achieving his goal of becoming a US citizen.

Exploring Immigration Law

With a passion for helping others, Ahmad began as a law clerk at Ellen Gorman P.A. in 2011. This is a boutique law firm that specializes in immigration law. He then joined Tucker & Ludin P.A., where he led the firm’s immigration law section.
Ahmad is also a frequent lecturer on immigration law. He was even a former adjunct professor of immigration law at St. Petersburg College.

Establishing His Law Practice

After four years of learning the ins and outs from some of the best attorneys, Ahmad finally decided to establish his own practice—the American Dream Law Office, PLLC in 2015. His leadership helped his firm become one of the leading immigration law firms in the Tampa Bay area.

Enduring a Formidable Feat

Ahmad Yakzan experienced firsthand the arduous struggle to gain US citizenship and achieve the American dream. That is why he aims to assist people of different nationalities to attain their own immigration goals.
